Liberté, égalite, fraternité'. Has the moment come to replace these words with some other ones or has the moment come to change ourselves?

In less than ten minutes and in his sharp, critical and pungent way, Trbuljak deals with some of the most important problems of modern world: its internal structure, (un)fairness and relation to the ideals of the French Revolution that all of us still invoke, even only declaratively. The film consists of several scenes, shot in various cities and on various continents, always showing the same: garbage containers and people digging out food scraps from them. Container covers slide open and closed and each of them hides one of the three words of the well-known ‘triptych’: 'Liberté, égalite, fraternité'. The question the author is making is: Has the moment come to replace these words with some other ones or has the moment come to change ourselves maybe?
